pageant mom

Her ballet teacher gave specific instructions:

Slick back hair into a bun.
(or in Lucy's the best you can with what you've got)
Place flower on right side of head.
Wear capezio soft pink tights.
No underwear.
(we wouldn't want to see unsightly lines)

And of course....

Apply blush, mascara and lip color so they don't look washed out under the lights.

I was skeptical at first.
I didn't want to feel like a pageant mom.
But then I took one look at her under those lights and up on that stage....
and I said
Sign me up!

Can you blame me?

OH MY GOSH! Those pics make my heart race a little bit. It takes me back to when my girls first started dance! Lucy is darling in her tutu! :)

I am anti-pageant (probably because I feel like I was "forced" into one in my teens), but your little Lucy would definitely make a contender. So cute!
(And may I ask how you applied such a wonderful makeup job and hair style on one her age? I am going to be attempting this in a month and the hair and makeup is the part I am looking forward to the least.) :P
